    Default Team Jackobyte Baja/Losi - Take 2

    My last pro line shell lasted all of 1 Bashfest so hoping this Hemistorm Addict will do better..

    That moment when you remove the outer film and hope the masking went as planned, buggered up the no 8 but i can live with that - happy with the rest with just tape and cans...

    Now need to cut down some windows then its done..

    looks top banana matey ,

    and I would suggest the same as always me said above mate,
    a white vinyl number eight but a shade bigger than the painted eight and the centre holes slightly smaller, would cover the other eight up a treat,

    but on the other hand your probably like me and would have to see if the painted one could be tidied up first

    Are those aftermarket shells stronger that hpi ones? Last summer bought a new shell and it lasted only few weeks, started cracking around fuel cap and side bods took beating from stones and sand

    Yeah thats what happened to mine also, didnt take long to snap in two pieces.
    Sidepods take a lot of beating where i usually bash, had to make some metal plates to protect them and rear chassis plastic plate from bending
